NAWA Chair – Guest Professorship programme in Poland

Are you considering collaborating with Polish universities or scientific and research institutes? The NAWA Chair programme gives you this opportunity.

The Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) is pleased to announce the NAWA Chair programme for scientists interested in guest professorship in Poland. The first edition of the programme is open to the fields of humanities as well as social and theological sciences.

We would like to invite you to participate in this unique programme, which will allow you to establish scientific cooperation with excellent host institutions in Poland.

Under the programme, Polish universities as well as scientific and research institutes will be able to invite to Poland outstanding specialists from their priority areas who will significantly further breakthrough research, strengthen the institutions' teaching activities and support them in preparing applications for prestigious grants. Polish higher education and scientific institutions will employ scientists from various countries around the world for a period of 36-48 months, and create project groups for them.

The NAWA Chair programme provides financing for the remuneration of the guest professor amounting to approx. EUR 7,200 a month and for a mobility allowance as well as for remuneration for the members of the project group. In addition, the programme offers the option to cover the costs of scientific research in the area of basic research financed by the National Science Centre in Poland.

NAWA will announce editions for other fields of science in the following years.

We kindly encourage you to contact Polish higher education and scientific entities and apply for the NAWA Chair grant.

The call for proposals is open from 1st June to 31st July 2020
